Went to Nola before a show. Other downtown restaurants had no availability and Nola did. I now understand why. Menu was average, lacking creativity. I had the jambalaya and the dish was drenched in tomato sauce/paste. There was so much sauce, it was hard to tell if there was rice in the dish. The seafood in the dish was good, as was the chicken, but that was on top of the dish. Everything else was ruined with the excessive sauce. The gumbo was bland, and didn't have much in it. My wife had the crab soup and that was pretty good. She had shrimp and scallops with macaroni and cheese. It was good, but is that really a New Orleans dish? Server was pleasant and attentive, but something about the atmosphere was off.
Prices were about what you would expect from an upscale restaurant, and while it wasn't terrible, there are much better choices in the area.
